1967 Gulf Mirage From Le Mans Miniatures
Posted by Anonymous on Friday, March 12, 2004 6:33 PM
Well folks I am just starting to clean up the resin on this kit. It has alot of flash. I have test fit most of the parts together and it seems to look like it will assemble pretty well. My only question is do you place the vacuformed glass in the cockpit before you paint or after. I keep thinking it would be easier to glue and sand the glass in after the paint, however I am not sure. Let me know if you have any ideas. I can post pictures of the kit's contents if anyone is interested. Thanks, Rene'

Whenever possible, I always like to glue the glass parts to bare plastic then mask with Pactra Liquid Mask #701. I'm not sure how this would work with resin, but after painting, it seems the glass looks more flush.
